JPublished. by- a,«tliority of the State 


The volume of the Axdiives is now ready for distribution and 

is the third in the series, containing the records of the Judicial 
Business of the Provincial Court. The period covered by this 
volume runs from 1658 to the close of 1662. The differentiation 
of the Proceedings of the Council from those of the Court had 
not as yet been made clearly by the clerk and tMs volume contains 
certain documents which we should have expected to find in the 
Council records, such as the proclamations establishing Charles 
County and announcing the protectorship of Richard Cromwell. 
The period covered by this volume is a very interesting one, as it 
covers the close of the administration of the Province by the 
Puritan Commissioners, the governorship of Josias Fendall and 
the performance of executive functions by the Proprietor's half- 
brother, Philip Calvert, and by his son and heir, Charles Calvert. 

The earlier volumes of the Provincial Court Proceedings are 
numbers four and ten of the whole series and were published 
many years ago. It seems worth while to return to these Court 
Proceedings in order to call attention to the varied character of 
the Archival material, as well fts on aeeoant of the intrinsie 
interest of the cases themselves. 

Genealogists will find many items of value in the depositions 
filed in the several cases and students of institutions, legal and 
social will discover many items of value for their study. 

The attention of members of the society who do not now receive 
the Archives is called to the liberal provision made by the L^is- 
lature, which permits the Society to furnish to its own members 
copies of the volumes, as they are published from year to year, 
at the mere cost of paper, press work, and binding. This cost is 
at present fixed at one dollar, at which price members of the 
Society may obtain one copy of each volume published during 
the period of their membership. For additional copies, and for 
volumes published before they b«eane aaeBabors, 1^ legstkx price 
of three dollars is charged.

McHeiiet Howabd. 

In tearing down the old Baltimore City Court House and 
the Record Office (and Orphans' Court) Building on the south 
side of Lexington Street between Calvert and St. Paul Streets 
in 1895 — some volumes of early Eecords of the Baltimore 
County Court came to light. ^ On the completion of the new 
(present) Court Building these were placed in the inner room 
of the office of the Clerk of the Superior Court, where they, 
now «re. Shortly after their new location I made the following

make notes:

" Christopher Gist (eldest eon of Captain Bichord Gist, who died 22 
August 1741), was a planter in Baltimore County and a merchant in 
Baltimore Town. From him were purchased in 1743 for 2 pounds cur- 
rency the two acres of "Adventure" for the new St. Thomas's (Garrison 
Forest) Churdi. He seems to have failed in business about 1745 and to 
have become an Indian trader. From his home, l^en on the head of the 
Yadkm Eiver in Southern Virginia, he made in 1750-1-2, extensive explora- 
tions for the Ohio Company of the country beyond the mountains, through 
what is now Ohio, Kentucky and Wfst Virp;inia. In 1752 he settled on 
the frontier of Western Pennsylvania. lie was Washington's guide to the 
French in 1753 and served in Braddock's campaign in 1755. He is said to 
have died of smallpox in 1760 while on a mission to the Southern Cherokee 
Indians. His journals have been published.

are still so named. 

" For a full account of Captain Thomas Oresap in the Pennsylvania 
border troubles see this Magazine, Vol. IX, page 1. While being carried, 
under insults, through Philadelphia, he is reported to have said jeer- 
ingly, "Why this is the finest Tows in Majr^rland! "

throughout the Colony — in the upper part of Baltimore County. About 
25 years ago Mr. Julian Smith, with others, saw one which escaped into a 
stone pile near Loch Baven. It had probably come dorm the Gimpowder

(Continued from Vol. XVII, p. 363) 

On March 4, 1849, the Vice-President appointed Pearce a 
R^ent of the Smiftsonian Institution, a position whidi he held 
until his death. He became one of the chief spokesmen for 
the Institution in the Senate, defending it for not accepting 
objects of art, as the endowment was not large, and the Eegents 
who " have done their duty properly, judiciously, economically, 
faithfully," were therefore preparing to erect the Iniilding 

His interest in the Institution led him to prepare an im- 
portant report in 1854 which was acknowledged on June 25 
by A. G. Brown of Miasissij^i, writing from Wadiington as 
follows : I 

" I have read with singular interest the report written by 
yourself " on the distribution of the income of the Smithsonian 
fund etc." which you did me the honor to send. The dis- 
tinction which you make between the accumulation of learning 
in the form of books, and the diffusion of knowledge among 
men strikes me with great force. And I am no less impressed 
with the idea advanced by you that nothing is added to the 
" increase " of knowledge by the simple concentration of that 
which has already been ascertained in a particular locality. 
Knowledge is not increased by its concentration. I pay but 
an humble tribute to the memory of Smithson when I say that 
until I had read your report — ^no proper appreciation of his 
philanthropy had entered my mind. The report presents him

'Chief Justice Taney was also a regent and often wrote 
Pearce from Baltimore to inquire whether it would be neces- 
sary for him to come to Washington to attend a meeting.^^® 

In 1854 a controversy arose among the regents, as to whether 
they should establish a great library or not. Although Pearce 
was distinctly a literary man, he joined the majority of the 
board in supporting Professor Henry and in opposing Pro- 
fessor Jewett and the plan of a library. As a result of the 
controversy, Eufus Ghoate retired from the board, attacking 
it for its decision. On January 17, 1865, Pearce rose in its 
defence against the charges that the regents had substituted 
their will for that of Congress. Pearce, who had been one of 
those who had been " thus contumacious," received these re- 
proaches with " something of indignation." He differed with 
the " brilliant parliamentary and forensic orator," and on the 
side of Pearce stood men of "such weight of character as, 
cannot be exceeded in this Country." Among them were Taney, 
who " holds the first rank as a jurist in the United States, first 
unquestionably in position and, as I believe, not surpassed 
either in the extent and variety of his legal learning, the vigor 
and acuteness of his logical faculties, or by the purity of his 
professional and private life, by any man in the country or 

For example, on June 2, 1854, Taney wrote that he had been unwell

come to Washington, except for an important meeting. 



elsewhere." Pearce considered it " extremely fortunate that 
I concur in opinion on this question," with him and also with 
Richard Eush, J. M. Berrien, and J. Y. Maaon of Virginia. 
The discretionary powers of the Eegents are large and the 
real gist of thp matter was that all of the $25,000 authorized 
to be expended for a library had not been spent. The regents 
were required to provide lecture rooms and had, therefore, 
paid lecturers. They were even required to have a chemical 
laboratory, therefore, they establisAied researches. Their col- 
lections must be described in memoirs and the trust was broad 
enough to enable the regents to pay for researches, outside of 
the walls of museums, and for the description of objects, not 
in the collections. He defended Professor Henry, the secre- 
tary, for the removal of his assistant, and for having power te 
do so without reference to the board. Henry was a " getntle- 
man, as well as widely known to the world of science, a pro- 
found philosophic scholar, a man of pure and stainless life." 
It would be proper for the Senate to investigate the conduct of 
the Regents, in addition to the investigation proposed by the 
House of Representatives; but Pearce would not move this, 
since he could not serve on the committee. This controversy 
led to an interesting interchange of letters between Pearce and 
Henry.^*® Henry's first letter, dated March 12, 1855, read 

"° From Cajubridge, Mass., on Aug. 4, 1855, we find an interestkig letter 
of Asa Gray on Joseph Henry. 

"I am concerned to find that a sentence (on p. 10) in an article in 
Silliman's Journal on the Smithsonian Institution appears to convey a 
TsTong impression, in respect to your views when the subject of the organi- 
zation of the Institution was before the Senate. 

"Kot paying particular attention to a point «side from the general 
argument, I fear I was misled by the quotations in iMr. Meacham's report, 
which I did not verify as -I ought to have done. iSo I was led to suppose 
that you advocated Mr. Marsh's bill or project, as pr^^able to Mr. 

" But I am now incidentally informed that this is not the ca^e, or not 
a correct representation of it. 

" it seemed to me so natural that this should be so, — with much untried 
Kod in B<me respects impossible fropoBS^ as those of Mir. Ow^s bill. — 



" Accompanying this letter I send you the letter of appoint- 
ment a copy of which has been deposited with the Secretary 
of the Senate. 

" TJpham's report has been published in the Boston Daily 
Advertizer. I have just had a copy of Witte's report copied 
to send this afternoon to the Boston Atlas. 

" It is headed as follows Mr. Witte from the select commit- 
tee made the following report, Mr. Taylor concurring and Mr. 
Puryear and Mr. Wells though not dissenting from all the 
views prepared not to sign either this report or the report made 
by Mr. Upham alone. 

and when it could not be known or hardly expected, that so truly a 
scientiflc, high-minded and incorruptibly honest and disinterested a person 
as Prof. Henry could be secured to the InsiatutioH. — ^that I adopted with- 
out investigation the view that you them favored the Library plan as 
preferable to any other then proposed. — and I presumed that your views 
underwent a change after Prof. Henry's appointment, and when it was 
seen as before perhaps it hardly could have been that such plans as those 
now adopted could safely and successfully be carried into execution. 

" I well remember having an interview with Prof. H. at Princeton, 
before he had accepted the post oflFered to him, and that I urged his 
accepting it on the ground that the Scientiflc men of the Country and 
others of good practical judgment, would feel little confidence in the 
practical working of such plans, unless he were to identify himself witli it. 

"I sec however that 'the expression I have inadvertently used that you 
had ' changed your mind ' may be deemed objectionable, and may not be 
true. I the more readily took the view from Mr. Meacham to show 
thereby what construction you, kbA therefore probably oth^ Seaators, must 
have put upon the law. 

*"! notice that Mr. Heacham does not give the date of the speedi of 
yours from which his quotations are made. The date would doubtless 
enable one to see what was the alternative then before the Senate. 

"My object now is, not only to apologize for having jumped to a con- 
clusion that I now suspect is more or less erroneous and to explain how 
I came to do so, but to ask your permission to correct it, in a brief note 
which I shall be glad to append to the ^sukig number of the Journal, 
now printing, and to ask you to assure me the means of making this 
oorrectitm perfect, if you think it worth while to recur to the subject in 
the Journal : — ^in which case an early line would reach me in time for the 

" I write with the strong determination not to misrepresent anybody: 
but I naturally was not so watchful in respect to the views of those who 
defended as to those who assailed (often as unfairly as wrongly) the 
management of tbe Institution in whidi we all feel so deep an inta-est." 



" [Mr. Witte had directed the printer to put the two reports 
in the same volume. 

" I have not yet heard from Mir. Puryear in answer to my 
letter complaining of the injustice of allowing Mr. Jewett to 
add to the testimony after the proceedings had been closed a 
criticism on my deposition etc. — 

"Ncfthing new except that I have just learned with much 
sorrow that the old college building at iPrioceton was burned 
down last night. 

" This has given me a depression of spirits "whi^h darkens 
for the present all things around me. 

" Do not forget to send me a drawing of your house in order 
that I may furnish the directions for the erection of the light- 
ning rods. 

" Jewett has ordered 1000 copies of the whole investigation 
before the committee of the House. He did not know at the 
time he did this that Mr. Witte's report was to form a part. 
It will cost him about 2000 doU. 

"We have a large amoimt of correspondence to dear off 
which has accumulated during the past month. 

" I presume you are engaged in arranging your own affairs 
after having given all your time and energies for three months 
to the business of others. Good deeds are safe investments 
for this life and that which is to come and I trust you will 
never know cause to regret the labor. 

"Since writing lihe above I have rec'd a copy of Mr. W.'s 
report and think it an admirable exposition of the affair. 

" In haste I remain as ever your friend & serv't." 

Henry's second letter was written on April 6th, 1855. 

" I have been exceedingly engaged since the receipt of your 
letter in bringing up the business which has fallen behind 
during the war and I hope you will therefor pardon me for not 
writing before this morning on the subject of lightning rods 
for your house. I commenced to examine the plan you sent 
me some time since but found it insufficient to enable me to 



give definite instruction. It will be necessary for this that I 
be furnished with a sketch of the elevation in addition to the 
ground plan now in my posaession and also witib an account 
of the position of the house in regard to the points of the 
compass. The latter is important because other things being 
equal the rods should be placed nearest that quailer of the 
heavens for which the thunder storms come whieh in this part 
of the Country is generally South of West. 

" I will send you the platina points as soon as I am able to 
furnish you with the proper directions. 

" Mr. Witte has been in the City and has examined the 
records of the Committee. He is indignant at the course pur- 
sued by Mr. Upham and though he does not think it proper 
to throw out the intruded matter on hie own responsibility he 
has added an appendix to his report protesting against the 
additions and omissions. He affixes to the appendix a com- 
munication from myself in which I examine Mr. Jewetts 
papers and endeavor to expose them fully. I regret that I 
could not submit this article to your cool criticism. I wrote 
h while the press were waiting and found it impossible to 
answer the several points of Mr. Jewett's papers without giving 
him a few 'hard knocks.' I also felt much inclined to give 
Mr. Meacham a few touches but refrained from doing so. 

" Mr, Witte's report with the additional matter follows im- 
mediately after the report of Mr. Ui^iam. The whole will 
therefore form our document in which the antidote will be 
administered with the bane. 

" I have received from Mr. Puryear a very satisfactory letter 
in which he deprecates in strong language the addition of new 
material after the investigation of the committee closed. 

" The fair of the metropolitan institute has terminated and 
the rooms in the institution will in after days be restored to 
their former appearance. I was called on at almost the last 
moment to give the closing address. It had the merit of 
brevity and perhaps was as well done as if I had been allowed 
longer time for preparation. 



" I made a visit last week to Baltimore and gave a lecture 
agreeably to promise before the Maryland Institute on ' Science 
and the Methods of Scientific Discovery.' It was attended by 
a very large audience and was apparently well received. I 
said nothing about the institution in the lecture though much 
interest was manifested in private in regard to it and all were 
pleased with the part the Chief Justice and yourself have taken 
in the affair. Though you have devoted much time and labor 
in the cause I trust your course will be properly appreciated 
by the Public generally. I have just received a very kind 
letter from Prof. Ckawell of Erown University in which he 
fully endorses the course of the Regents. 

" I have learned that Mr. Jewett has been nominated for 
the chair of Belles-lettres in Oolumljian 'OoUege D. O. This 
will serve to white-wash him and give him an opportunity to 
prolong the War. The walls of the college however, will not 
save him if he continues his attacks, I do not wish to lay a 
straw in his way and if he will remain content in with the 
position in which his o^\ti evil disposition has placed him or 
if he will endeavor to retrieve his character by another course 
I shall be pleased to give him any assistance in my power but 
if he continues to assail the Beg^its «bA myself he must expect 
to be answered." 

On April 11th, 18S5, Henry wrote for a third time. 

"I informed you in my last letter that I was about to 
append to the Report of Mr. Witte a reply to the papers of 
Mr. Jewett unlawfully introduced into the proceedings of the 
committee of the House. I have iowever on more mature re- 
flection and a conversation with the chief clerk of the House 
concluded to withdraw the article I had prepared and suffer 
the proceedings to be printed just as they come from the hands 
of the chairman. It is true I am authorized to append the 
article by Mr. Witt€ or rather it is appended by him yet as 
there is no other law than that of custom for the addition of 
matter to a report after it has come into the hands of a printer 



and as I wish not to give the slightest shadow of a cause of 
complaint I have concluded it is best to withdraw the article. 

" The reply ought to have been published with the pro- 
ceedings so that the antidote and the bane might go together. 
What is the remedy for this most egregious violation of pro- 
priety and I may say of honesty. Not only is Mr. Jefwett 
allowed to intrude two papers after the committee closed itg 
investigations but Mr. Blodget is allowed to withdraw two 
papers besides the letter published in the New York paper 
whieh you put in as evidence and the report of the executive 
committee. Furthermore the record is faulty in the extreme- 

" Shall I come out iu the Intelligencer with the facts of the 
case as exhibited in a correspondence between Mr. Witte and 
myself? Can I induce the next Congress to allow me to put 
on record an answer to Mr. Jewett's papers? As the matter 
now stands on the records of Congress I am not fully exon- 
erated from the charges which were made against me. 

" I am just now somewhat inclined for War. The pamphlet 
of Morse I have not yet taken up. Like Blodget Morse is a 
compound of a small amount of talents and a large amount of 
something elae.

On April 5, 1860, Benjamin Hush wrote Pcarce, asking 
permission to print in a memorial volume, the latter's remarks 
in the Smithsonian Proceedings concerning his father who was 
a Regrait. On February 21, 1861, Pearce urged the passage 
of an appropriation for the distribution of the duplicates 
" enormous in bulk and value " belonging to the Smithsonian 
Institute, so that every college in the United States may receive 
some of them. 

Pearce's scientific interests and his friendship for William 
H. Emory joined together to cause him to introduce a request 
on December 9, 1847, that the Secretary of War send the 
Senate a copy of a military reconnaissance of a route from 
Fort Leavenworth to San Diego, made by Emory as Lieutenant 
of Topographical Engineers. ^^'^

" Emory wrote him from time to time, as from El Paso, 
on January lY, 1855, concerning the survey of the Border. 
When Emory had finished his work, he found a defender in 
Pearee, on April 8, 1858, when the latter called attention to 
the fact, that Emory had paid back part of the appropriation.-^'® 
While making this defence, Pearce rranarked that it was cus- 
tomary for scientific instructors to be sent with expeditions to 
terra incognita. These reports were not trash. For example, 
" we never sit here a day, or put our hats on our heads, that 
we are not making use of something which the study of insect 
life has contributed to the industrial arts and brought into 
common use. . . . Nothing is more useful to those who till 
the ground than the study of those insects which are hurtful 
or beneficial to the great staples of agriculture — ^the so-called 
bugology." " There is value in this," he continued, " and there 
is value in all human knowledge, I do not care what it is. 
Nothing is beneath the study of man which is the work af his 
creator." England appreciated our scientific reports.^^® 

He was constantly an advocate of the Coast Survey; on 
February 19, 1849, he defended Alexander Dallas Bache, its 
bead, Franklin's grandson, from an attack by Thomas H. 
Benton, and said that the expenditure for the Survey " calls 
for patriotism and good sense on every American Senator." 
He thought the Survey might be completed in fifteen years 
and held that the Navy Officers were incompetent to perform 
the more difficult and scientific operations of this work;" 
because they lacked " knowledge of geodetic operations, as es- 

the purchase of a map of Texas by J. D. Cordova, because othw mapo were 
available. On Jan. 21, 1850, he presented a memorial from the Maryland 
State Agricultural Society requesting the establishment of a Federal 
Bureau of Af;riculture. He spoke on the Mexican boundary on July 26 
and Aug. 27, 1852 and on poatponi:^ the printing of a report thereon on 
April 5, 1853. 

''"On May 13, he defended him again. In the April speech, he favored 
the publication, under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institute, of 
Rodgers report on an expedition to Bering Straits. 

"•During ttait year. Major Eteory Wrote Fearee fr<Mtt Fori Eiley <»

eential as hydrographic " ones, for the survey. From the estab- 
lishment of the survey in 1807, he traced its history and 
compared it minutely with the British. Ordnance Survey. He 
defended Hassler, the former superintendent and Bache, the 
present one, who was "not only a man of profound scientific 
ability, disciplined in the severest school of study known in 
the United States, but he has matured and improved his 
earlier acquisitions, since his arrival at manhood, by the most 
diligent research, perseveringly pursued at home and carefully 
prosecuted abroad; and, indeed hy every means known by the 
philosophical scholar. To all this ability and acquirement, he 
adds a simplicity of character which becomes the philosopher, 
which not only sheds a grace upon him, but secures for him. 
the fullest confidence of aU who know him." 

Bache was " in the field for eight months in the year, con- 
ducting and superintending the observations — always when in 
the field, making astronomical and geodetic observations him- 
self." He had furnished, every year, a full account of his 
operations, concealing nothing, so that, with full knowledge, 
Congress had " sanctioned the maimer, the means, and the ex- 
tent of the Coast Survey, as conducted at the present time." 
The " old exploded system of detached and imperfect surveys " 
should not be resumed. The work of the survey " was due, 
not only to science, but to ourselves; due to that commerce 
which pours into our treasury nine tenths of all its revenues, 
. . . due to the navigation which conducts that commerce and 
which furnishes us with the very best defences our country 
can have against foreign aggression." Not only this, but the 
very "lives of our marines . . . depend upon the accuracy 
with which that work is accomplished." Pearce then ex- 
pounded the act of 1807, by which the survey was instituted, 
and the subsequent modifying acts of 1832 and 1843. " The 
primary object of the Coast Survey is to make an accurate map, 
on which shall be delineated the whole coast of the United 
States, not the principal capes and headlands only, but the 
whole coMt, whether on the shore or off the shore, the knofwledge 



of which may be of any sort of value to navigators. This is 
a work which cannot be done, eithei' by ordinary land sur- 
veying or by ordinary off-shore surveying. It is work of the 
highest science. It requires the very beet sfbility, the most 
complete and refined observations, the use of the most delicate 
instruments, the nicest and most complex calculations — astro- 
nomical as well as trigonometrical calculations." The Coast 
Survey, under Bache, and Hassler, 4iad " not only kept up 
with all the inventions and improvements of science in other 
countries," but had even " surpassed them." Pearce then de- 
scribed the operations of the survey and called attention to 
some of its important accomplishments. He also compared it 
with the surveys of Great Britain and France and pointed out, 
by a comparison of Hassler's and Bache's work, that additional 
appropriaticms iwere needed and that the moneys appropriated 
were being well expended. He maintained " that to delineate 
accurately the coast of the United States, required the highest 
scientific and practical abilities " and that, while naval and 
military officers were useful in the work, there were not enough 
qualified men in the service to carry on the Survey, without 
the further employment for civilians." 

He defended,^*^ on March 3, 1858, the printing of large 
numbers of copies of the Coast Survey reports, since there was 
an " immense demand " for them. The skeleton maps con- 
tained therein show the hidden dangers of the waters. Later 
in the same session he defended the Survey a second time. 
" 'No department of this government, or any other government, 
under the sun, has ever applied a sum of money more econo 
mically, more beneficially, and more effectually than have the 
appropriatioBs, which have feeen made for the Coast Survey, 
been applied by that office." If unintemapted, the work would 

On July 29, 1854, he defended the system o£ paying the Coast Survey 
Olerks and rather made fun of Stephen A. Douglas, while defending an 
appropriation for an auxiliary guard. 

On Aug. 8, 1656, he moved tli«t Ba^e he permitted to teee^ a gold

be completed in twelve years. There were doubts as to the 
constitutionality of river and harbor bills, none as to that of 
the Coast Survey. When once completed, the needed resurveys 
will be less expensive. 

The Coast Survey^*^ was not the " offshoot of old whiggery," 
but was " the offspring " of Mr. " Jefferson's philosophical 
mind," and, consequently, should be supported by the Demo- 
cratic party. It was dearly ctmstitutiraial, under the power 
to regulate commerce.^** 

Finally, on February 25, 1861, Pearce defended again the 
appropriation for the Coast Survey. Maine's Coast had yet 
to be surveyed and the annexation of Texas and the Pacific 
Coast had greatly increased the cost of the work. He deplored 
the great unfriendliaess to it and called attention to the fact 
that all appointments and promotirais in the force were made 
by merit. 

The Nautical Almanac received his frequent advocacy, as a 
matter of scientific pride, and as a proper completion of the 
"system of navigation of a great commercial and maritime 
nation." We ought to be independent of the British 
Almanac and, indeed, the American calculations may correct 
the British ones. The sale of the Almanacs repaid part of the 
expense of preparing them.^*® 

iSpeaking in behalf of the Nautical Almanac, on August 3, 
1964, he favored extra pay to naval officers employed thereon 
and finally secured sea pay for them. He also defended th« 
salary of the meteorologist of the navy and read from a French 
book, " turning it into as good English," he said, " as I can, 
as I go along." On August 12, 1856, he opposed the transfer 
of the Nautical Almanac to the Naval Observatory, from 
CkxBhri^^ Mase., it was "w^l -cared for" by Pro-

fessor Davis. He believed tliat Commodore Maury, Who was 
the Observatory's head, was clever, but that the Observatory 
was becoming overgrowii. Pearce defraided the Almanac 
from Hale's attacks and maintained that every coimtry should 
have one.^** 

Pearce successfully advocated the passage of an appro- 
priation of $6,400 for the payment of astronomical instru- 
ments used in Gillig's l^aval Astronomical Expedition and 
defended that expedition against Niles of Connecticut, main- 
taining that " any observation that ascertains, with greater 
accuracy than is now ascertained, the distance between the 
sun and the earth is of immense importance, not only in esti- 
mating all distances relating to the solar system; but also of 
immense importance to navigation — a subject in which, I sup- 
pose, the gentleman from 'Connecticut feels as great an interest 
as myself, or any other member of this body, as the inhabitants 
of his State are great navigators and traverse the pathway of 
the nations, with a frequency and daring sddom equalled by 
any people." 

The printing of the scientific, reports of the United States 
Exploring Expedition, which circumnavigated the world under 
the command of Captain 'Charles Wilkes during the years 
1838 to 1842, caused Pearce much trouble for many years.^''^ 
On April 15, 1850, he pointed out that Jackson favored the 
expedition. On August 19, 1852, he asked for an appropria- 
tion June 16 and 18, 1860. 

t* On account of this defense, Prof, Benjamin Pierce wrote him on 
June 18. Another proof of his interest in science was given his support 
on May S, 1960 of a proposed eEpedition to ihe LatoaSor Coast to obs^re 
fhe total eclipse d the moon. 

'"On Jan. 12, 1849. On Feb. 96, 1846 he had offered a resolution re- 
questing the committee on naral affairs to inquire into the expediflotey

tion to preserve canvas. 

""On Feb. 27, 1849, he asked for an appropriation of $15,000 for that 
purpose and as late as Feb. 28, 1862, he adced that the plates of the

tion and defended the scholarliness of tlie work, explaining 
tlie delay in issuing it, and said thait the expedition had been 
for the survey of islands and coasts, to aid the whale fishery, 
and to benefit science toward the advancement of which the 
United States government owed a debt^^^ He felt that the 
work did " honor to the science of the country " and ai^ued 
that a " field naturalist, with very small acquirements, can 
make coUeetions; but that it requires the VCTy highest science 
to describe these collections."

meeting on " Rev. Libertus Van Bokkelen."

cipal of St. Timothy's, exhibited these pictures and the Presi- 
dent said the Society was very much indebted for the oppor- 
ttunifty to examine th«n. 

Judge Dawkins then said he had a gift — a substantial one — • 
to present for a gentleman who had, before his death, been a 
member of this Society. This gentleman had come here from 
Virginia and had always been interested in our institution. 
He had become a member in 1919 and had attended the meet- 
ings in a quiet way. At one of them, when the Endowment 
Fund was being discussed, he had given $1,000 towards it. 
Judge Dawkins said he took great pleasure in presenting on 
behalf of the late Mr. Drayton Meade Hite a cheque for $6,000. 
to be used as the Society thinks best. He went on' to say . that 
Mr. Hite had expressed the wish that the money herald not 
, be used for current expenses, but invested, and the income used 
to the best advantage. Judge Dawkins then stated some facts 



from a publication called " Shenandoali Valley Pioneers and 
Descendants. A History of Frederick County, Virginia," by 
T. X. Cartmell, Clerk of the Old Comity Court. This volume 
presented by Judge Dawkins contains much that is valuable 
about the Hite and Meade families. He further stated that 
Mr. Hite's family had asked permission to present to the Soci- 
ety paintings of Mr. Drayton M. Hite, and of his mother and 
grandfather and grandmother. President Harris followed up 
Judge Dawkins remarks, accepting the pictures and the money. 
IJpon motion it was provided that the thanks of the Society be 
conveyed to the widow of l£r. Hite through the Corresponding

Eei'oet oi" the Libeaey Committee 

Tour Committee reports that though practically without 
funds during the current year, it has nevertheless functioned 
to considerable purpose and has added materially to the posses- 
sions of the Society, largely through the medium of exchange. 

Statistically there have been added 337 volumes, 76 pam- 
phlets, 43 volumes of newspapers, 4 maps, and 7 atlases. 

The heaviest single item of expenditure on the part of your 
Committee was for rebinding 183 volumes of the Maryland 
Session Laws and Journals. This special fund was granted in 
consideration of the gift of volumes of the laws and journals 
lacking from our collection, by Dr. J. Hall Pleasants. These 
volumes have been painstakingly collated, and missing titles 
and pages of text supplied by means of photostat copies. Our 
set of early session laws is now in excellent condition and is 
one of the most complete extant. Further steps are under con- 
sideration for the closing of existing gaps. 

Among the more important accessions have been: 



The Diary of Eobert Gihnor, Jr., 1826-27. Mas. 

The European Journal of Eobert Gilmor, Jr. 3 vols, Mss. 

European Journal of Eobert Oilmor of William. 2 vols. Mss. 

Water color drawings by Eobert Gilmor, Jr. 1 vol. 

The last item is the gift of Mrs. Thomas Gittings Buchanan and four 

volumes of the Journals from, Major Albert Gilmor, U. S. A. 
A letter-coi)y hook of Charles Carrtdl Hteper, pres^ted by the Pesibody 


A military census of Baltimore, 1813 and other mantiscripts. 
Muster EoU of Capt. Henry Kuhn's company of Militia, 1799, pre- 
sented by Mrs. Henry W. Rogers. 
Additional manuscripts from the Bland and Alfizastd^ eoQeoticmi, 

from Miss Margaret H. S. Berlceley. 
A large and valuable collection of early newspapers and periodicals 

from the late James h. McLane. 
By exchange with the Boston Athenaeum, the Eobert Charles Billings 

Fund Publications. 
A very long run of the N. Y. Genealogical and Biographical Quarterly, 

nearly completing our set. 
A large collection of photostat reproductions of title pages, rare pam- 

^lets, etc., illustrating the HistOTy of Colemifll ^intisg, Resented 

by Mr. Lawrence Wroth. 
A history of Printing in Colonial Maryland, by L. C. Wroth, presented 

by the author. 

The life of Roger Brooke Taney, by Bernard C. Steiner, presented by 
the author. 

A great deal of time and effort has been spent in completing 

broken files of the Historical publications in our possession. 
There are many bad gaps, due partly to carelessness in the past 
and to the financial difficulties of the present, but in spite of 
the fact that the process is slow and expeosive, we are making 
material progress. 

Your Committee is especially pleased to report that work 
has been actually begun on the repair and calendaring of the 
manuscript collection. This has been made possible only 
through volunteer labor and the -vvork is necessarily very slow. 
An appropriation of $1,000 from the State Treasury has sup- 
plied the neeassary sinews. 

The following is the expenditure authorized by your Com- 
mittee :

The Committee of the Maryland Historical Society respect- 
fully reports that during the year 1922 the M<iryland Hisiorical 
Magazine appeared quarterly^ printing valuable source mate- 
rial, important historical studies and the Proceedings of the 
Society. We have endeavored to have the articles cover differ- 
ent periods in the history of Maryland, and some of the articles, 
such as the diary of Eobert Gilmor and the account of the 
burial ground, Wye Island, have excited favorable comment. 
Mr. Louis H. Dielman continues his able editorship of the 

During the year volume forty-one of the Archives of Mary- 
land was published, containing Proceedings of the Provincial 
Court of the Province from 1685 to 1662, being the third 
volume of this series. A number of important matters are 
included in this volume, one of which, a decision of the Court 
upon the interpretation of the famous Toleration Act of 1649, 
is discu^ed in the American Historical Review for January. 

Volume forty-two is going through the press and will include 
the Proceedings and Acts of the General Assembly of the 
Province from 1740 to 1744. It is our intention, if the appro- 
priation for the publication of the Archives be renewed at the 
next session of the Legislature, to take up in volume 43, the 
Proceedings of the Council of the State of Maryland from 
1779 to 1780,l)eing the fifth volume of the revolutionary series. 
Thanks to the enlarged appropriation, we are aWe to print « 
volume of Archives annually. 

We propose the adoption of the following resolution : 

Resolved, That the Magtmms Account be credited with the 



sum of $151.Y5 for tbe cost of printing the annual report of 
the Society and the list of members, and that the amount be 
charged to General Expenses; and that it also be credited, in 
accordance with the terms of the deed of gift of the late Mr. 
George Peabody, and of the resolution of the Society adopted 
January 3, 1867, with the sum of $431.50, being one-half of 
the income for the current year from the investments of the 
Peabody Fund ; and that the Magazine Account be then closed 
by appropriate entries in the usual manner. 

The receipts and disbursements on Magazine Account, as

Eepoet of the Committee on Membership 

The Assistant Librarian states that on the 31st of December, 
1922, the membership of the Society was as follows : 

Honorary members, 1 ; life members, 11 ; corresponding mem- 
bers, 26; associate members, 77; active members, 836 — Total, 
951, of whom 913 (associate and active members) are required 
by the Constitution to pay annual dues of $5.00. This shows 
a decrease of 24 active members from 1922 and a consequent 
loss of $120.00 in revenue, and reminds us of the importance 
of constsmtly bringing in new members to offset losses by deaths 
and other causes. 

Eepoet of the Committee on Genealogt and Heealdet 

Tour Committee report the decease of the former Chairman, 
Dr. Bernard B. Browne, in the early part of the past year. 
In May, 1922, at a special meeting of your Committee, Dr. J. 
Hall Pleaaantfi was elected Chairman to succeed Dr. Browne, 


deceased, and Mr. Eraneis B. Culver was appointed Secretary 
in the place of Mr. WiUiam J. McCLeUan, resigned. 

Thereupon, Dr. Pleasants was nominated to the Council of 
the Society, to fill the vacancy in that body, occasioned by the 
death of Dr. Browne. The name of Mr. William B. Maxye 
was favorably received as a new member of the Committee, 
subject to the regular procedure in such cases. 

At this meeting a recommendation was made by the Chair- 
man, Dr. Pleasants, that the members of the Society be re- 
quested to file their family pedigrees with the Maryland His- 
torical Society, the said request to be printed beneath the other 
matter appearing in the regular official notices thereafter to be 
sent out to the membership. The aforesaid recommendation 
has been favorably received and carried into effect. 

Tour Committee are pleased to note that the Society is con- 
tinuing its efforts to locate available church registers and 
records, and to have copies of the same made for the use of 
investigators; alsOj that some time has been devoted to the 
assembling and classification of miscellaneous manuscripts, 
many of which have a genealogical value, for the purpose of 
rendering them more accessible to the members of the Society. 

During the past year, the records of St. Mary's Parish, St. 
Mary's County, have been indexed, and the manuscript census 
lists of certain of the counties have been copied. 

It is particularly noteworthy that an original manuscript 
Register of St. James' Parish, Baltimore County (1775-1815) 
has come into the possession of the Society. This Register 
was found among the effects of the late Osborne I. YeUott, 
Esq., a former member of our Society, and bore in Mr. Tellot's 
own handwriting the request that it be presented to the Mary- 
land Historical Society. We are indebted to the widow of 
Mr. Tellott for this original Register, a copy of which was 
made for the Society by Miss Harrison in 1890. 

Tour Committee report the addition to the Society's collec- 
tion of the following matters of genealogical interest : 



1. Gtenealogical Chart of the Gilmor and Hoffman Families (from the 

estate of the late J, Latimer Hoffman). Presented by Mrs. Thomas 
G. Buchanan.

are in a somewhat dilapidated condition for want of binding, 
and that certain Yolnmes of Force's American Archives, a rare 
compilation of data relating to the Eevdutionary War and

Kepoet Of THE Committee on Addsbssbs and Liteeaey 

Your Committee report and append a liat of papers read 
before tlie Society at its monthly meeting : 

January 6, 1922 — Mr. James McC. Trippe narrated a new story of George 

• Washington and a long-forgotten one. 
Mardi 6, 1922 — Honorable John W. Gtarreitt ^^e on The Washington

"Early American Stamp Acts." 

Msy 4, 1932 — 'There was no formal paper of the evening and the 
meeting was open to the presentation and discussion 
of any historical subjects that the members may 
suggest as well as any suggestions of subjects of 
interest for the future meetings of the Society. 

October 4, 1922 — Mr. Lawrence C. Wroth presented a collection of pho- 
tographic reproduction of rare Maryland pamphlets 
and broadsides. 

KoTwiber 1922 — A paper was read by Mathew Page Andrews. M. A.,

Annual Kbpoet of the President fob the Council 

It is required by the Constitution and By-Laws that in addi- 
tion to the Amraal Reports of the Trustees of the Athenaeum 
and of the several standing committees, there be submitted at 
the Annual Meeting of the Society a Report of the Council, 
which, in practice, is submitted by the President. So com- 
prehensive are the reports of the trustees and standing com- 
mittees that little remains for the Council but to approve their 
contents and present them to the Society. 

Efforts have been made throughout the past year, as there- 
tofore, to bring a wider knowledge and more active interest 
throughout the community, which it is felt neither knows the 
Society as well nor appreciates its value as fully as its impor- 
tance to the State and City and to the preservation of Mary- 
land history entitle it to be known, appreciated and encouraged. 
In furtherance of these objects interesting and valuable papers 


have been presented at tlie monthly meetings, attendance at 
which has been above that of former years. 

Among the more notable of these addresses was that of the 
General Secretary of " The Washington Conference," Mr. John 
W. Garrett, by which the Society was informed of the workings 
of that Conference shortly after its close and given an under- 
standing of it not otherwise obtainable. 

Steps were taken to arrange a reception to the Governor end 
the mmebers of the General Assembly while in session, but it 
was foimd impracticable to select a date upon which this could 
be accomplished, with due regard to the pressing engagements 
of the members of the Legislature. 

Upon the occasion of the visit to Baltimore of M. Georges 
Clemenceau, there was tendered to him a most enjoyable re- 
ception, with which he has been kind enough to express himself 
as being highly gratified. The details of this reception are set 
out in the report of the Special Committee to which they were 

Honorary membership in the Society has been conferred upon 
M. Clemenceau as a " person eminently distinguished for his- 
torical, literary or scientific attainments," — ^the qualifications 
for such membership prescribed by the Constitution. This 
action having been recently taken, there has not been time for 
M. Clemenceau's formal acceptance to be received. 

Full attention has been given to very numerous applications 
for historical and genealogical information, both in the library 
and by correspondence. 

The Society records its grateful acknowledgment of the cor- 
dial interest in its welfare always accorded by His Excellency 
Governor Kitchie and during the past year especially mani- 
fested in connection with the rental of the Athenaeum Build- 
ing, and in the increase in the State appropriation for its 
publicaticm of the Archives of Maryland under the supervision 
of this Society. 

Among the many donations to the library, cabinet and mis- 
cellaneous collections, there may be noted the Eobert Gilmor 



Diary 1826-1832, from Mr. Louis H. Dielman; an unbroken 
file of Baltimore newspapers, August 7, 1778 to December 31, 
1832, from Mr. E. Glenn Ferine; a complete set of Niles 
Roister and many other volumes, from Mr. James L. McLane ; 
the letter book of Charles Carroll Harper, from the Trustees 
of the Peabody Institute of Baltimore. After years of unsuc- 
cessful effort, and through the courte;^ of the Secretary of the 
Treamiry and the Collector of the Port, and with the assist- 
ance of Senator Joseph Irwin France, there have been secured, 
" on deposit," from the United States Government, several 
hundred manuscript books and papers, of date mainly in the 
latter part of the eighteenth century, and comprising, among 
other items of great value to the Maryland historian, Tax Rolls, 
Carriage duties. Council of the Safety orders. Sailing permits, 
the Articles of Agreement between merchants of Baltimore 
and officers and crew of the privateer " Conqueror," &c. It 
is greatly regretted that the calendaring and preparation for 
examination of this mass of infoimation is entirely imprac- 
ticable for the want of available funds, as is the case with so 
much other valuable material in the possession of the Society. 

The Society was represented at the celebration of the one 
hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Mono- 
cacy Church at Cre^erstown; at the ceremonies attending the 
unveiling of a monument to Lionel Copley, first royal Governor 
of Maryland, at St. Mary's ; and upon other occasions of historic 

Under the will of Drayton M. Hite, the Society received the 
sum of $6,000, which has been invested as part of the Endow- 
ment Fund, and by the wUl of J. Wilson Leakin, there was 
bequeathed to the Society the sum of $10,000, a number of 
autographs and other documents and several pieces of furni- 
ture. These items appear to constitute a siagle bequest and 
have not yet been received. 

In closing its Annual Report under date February 13, 1922, 
the Council advised the Society that 

" In plain figures, the Society is now in debt some fifteen 


thousand dollars and is running behind at the rate of about 
four thousand dollars a year. This is not a situation to be 
relieved by rigid economy. The operating expenses are cut to 
the bone already and opportuaitiee for securing material aad 
rendering it available to the stateit amd the puMic are paasing 
daily and irrevocably." 

The Council reiterates this statement and warning, with the 
additional fact that the outstanding debt has now reached 

A Special Committee is now earnestly engaged in renewed 
efforts to meet this deplorable situation in such manner as shall 
be deemed most judicious, — primarily by securing additions to 
the Endowment and Maintenance Funds,— to which end the 
earnest cooperation of the members of the Society is most 
urgently sought. As an example of the drastic action "which 
may become unavoidable, unless relief be otherwise secured, 
the abandonment of the publication of the Society's Magazine 
is under consideration, the consequences of which, should it 
become necessary, would indude painful mortification and 
Avould prove a serious deprivation not only to the members of 
the Society, but as well to the large number of institutions and 
individuals to whom its quarterly numbers have proved of the 
utmost interest and value and have served for the permanent 
record and dissemination of valuable historical matter which 
must, without the Magazine, remain unpublished and prac- 
tically inaccessible to the public and to the student. 

Only with the active co-operation of the members of the 
Society and with the assistance of its friends can the useful- 
ness, — ^perhaps the efficient existence, — of the Society be con- 

Eeepectfiilly submitted, 

W. Hall Haeeis, 
President for the Coimcil.
